Beautiful Sunshine

Well the beautiful weather we've been having for the last couple weeks has inspired the color of my card.  Today we were a balming 29C.  And I hear we're in for snow next week. 

I actually card lifted this one.  I love the simplicity of Kelley Eubanks cards. She does beautiful work. Her blog is My Front Porch, check it out.

mamacita needs a margarita

Evening everyone.  What a day.  First day back after being home for a week.  Boy, am I exausted.  But I'v managed to finish the card I started last night.

Yesterday in the mail I received the stamp set I won over at Graphicat Sketchs. They have just posted the next sketch.  So hop on over there and have a look.  It looked like such a fun set I had to play with it last night.  I have used three of the stamps from the set.

Lieber Blog Award

I'd like to thank Elisa over at Gr8 Country Life for this wonderful Award.  It's taken some time to organize my post.  Last week was March Break.  I took my holidays, so I was home with the kids.  DH was off with us since Wed.  Did a whole lot of nothing all week.  So great to just relax and not have a time table to follow.  Today is my last day home, hoping to enjoy the peace and quiet before returning to work tomorrow.  But as always, I have a kid home sick. 

Now if I happen to pass this Blog Award over to you, please do the following for me:

1. Acknowledge the blogger who gave you the award by linking back to them.
2. Give this award to 5 other bloggers, who must have less than 200 followers, and let them know
 through a comment on their blog.
 3. Post the award on your blog
4. Best of all- bask in the glory, have fun, and share the love!
Here are the other Bloggers I'm sharing this award with:
Ladies have fun with this and pass it on.  Thanks for all the inspiration.

Paper Bead Necklace

Afternoon everyone.  I know it's been awhile since my last post.  We had to dismantle the computer to move it to another room, as we are having our ceiling fixed finally. Back up and running, kind of.  It took three trys to get it to turn on today.  One of these days it's not going to. 

One day last week I attempted to make paper beads.  Things went pretty well for a first attempt.  And they didn't take as long as I was expecting.  I had enough beads for a necklace in an afternoon, just sitting and watching TV.  I brushed on some Glossy Accents to protect them.

Strung them together with a little metal bead between each one. And by bed time it was complete. 

Here is the finished product.  It goes around the neck like a tie.  With the two tails hanging down.  Not bad for a first attempt.  She wore it to school the next day, and came home with orders from all her friends.
